I don’t really get the part (all) when, subtextually, a logical view is associated to whites, and being emotional associated with being black.
I truly find this “your way/our way” is really going in the opposite direction of what should be.
I find that associating non logical reasoning as “the black way” , even if done lightly and subtextually, is really bad.
But I am half italian half japanese, so who am I to speak on that.
It would be nice if you could explain to me, because I really think that this reading is very subjective.
As if there were never a black surgeon… asking an excited white patient not to be emotional, and discuss rationally the matters at hand.
Infact, I know for a fact there was.
I truly believe rationality is an instrument to all humans, and it shouldn’t be seen as one race specialty.
Again, this is not heading well, especially on a broad audience.
Rationalizing is a process that takes from the feeling, and transforms it into something that is less subjective, more actionable
and chomprensible to others and also to ourselfs
So rationalization, IT IS an instrument to do just that. It’s not a “way”, and all the lesser one race’s specific way.
IT IS the word to describe the act of getting feeling into more useful stuff that can be used to shift reality more properly, and with more people working on it.
opposed to one own STILL ABSLUTELY LEGITIMATE, emo runt about anything…. am I really supposed to just listen and emphatically feel too? is this a price I have to pay for the past?If so, when this price is paid, can we move on?
That why rationalizing is useful even with one own self, when you want to make a change.
So yes, I am probably one of the gigazillion that doesn’t get it.
All the more I don’t get how such a RATIONAL and well written piece, can lead the reader to think that the author’s way is more about stomach and feelings.
Reading this, I’d say you can be rational if you have a blue monitor in front of you, not asking you to be rational.
